Sinking into Shadow

Sinking into Shadow

I saw the maiden’s
Silvery hair, her eyes like
Rubies shone brighter in
The night than the sun
Then I knew the voice
That called so softly
To my soul had taken over
What was never my own
And who am I to deny
The beauty of a perfect
Heavenly paradise to
Those who lie down
To happily die and who
Was I to warn them anyway
I just ran away today
Crying, weeping, and never
Never sleeping as the screams
Of past and future haemorrhage
Inside me, killing me so lovely

  1. I love how open you are with this poem and the blog in general. Mental health is rarely discussed in Muslim communities and it’s great that you’re opening up about it.
